From my recliner
comfortably ensconced in my recliner, I happened to look out at our tenacious maple trees (you know, the ones that refuse to shed their leaves until there's snow on the ground and they make a horrendous mess) and winking at me was this slash of green amidst the gold.
Intrigued, I went to the tv stand where my camera was supposed to be stored...and it was there! Braving the typhoon like weather (slight breeze with three-four raindrops) I snapped the picture. Of course, I immediately thought of the rule of thirds and knew my photography mentor would roil, so I took several more photos...none of which I liked as well. Frustrated and somewhat disheartened, I headed back inside, and on a whim, changed the settings and took one more. I like it!
No prizes, I'm sure, but like those leaves, a little tenacity made me feel better! Hang in there, and remember you are loved!
